If the issue won't die, why should the thread?

    A lot of people complain about threads once they have gotten to long, especially if they involve topics that make people uncomfortable. If there is a thread about mistreating feminine guys, a lot of guys are going to want to post on that thread because it gives them an opportunity to voice something that is a constant part of their experience in the gay world. Same goes for black or asian guys who experience tons of racism and have very few outlets to talk about it.

    People are not going to stop being mean to fems and they aren't going to stop trying to subjugate minorities so why should those people have to stop talking about it.

    If controversial threads were to suddenly disappear, the forums would be really boring really quick.

    Those types of topics always generate more heat than light, and it's always a repeat of the same heat. I think people are justifiably sick of them.

    Sometimes old threads are rehashed and they are so long with hundreds of posts that I don't really feel any need to respond as anything I would have to add has likely been said somewhere in the thread. And probably been said more than once.

    I always feel like if I post in those topics that no one is going to read what I say because there are so many posts.. so I just avoid them and go for the small post count... like this one!

    But no one has proposed a better solution.

    There is no solution. People are set in their ways. And when threads like that come up, they just restate their beliefs.

    Just masculine people. All the fem people seem to want to drone on forever about it, but that's not too big of a surprise: you just can't trust fems. They're like 1950's housewives that have never worked a day in their lives but get drunk and talk over their husbands about business they know nothing about.

    Yeah, I beez trollin' :-) Lovely day for it.
